How many planets?

We here at the NerdFamily Blog like to keep you apprised of breaking nerdy news! Well, there are only 8 planets now. According to the International Astronomical Union, Pluto is no longer a planet.

Pluto failed to make the new cut because its oblong orbit overlaps with Neptune’s. It will now be a founding member of the new class of “dwarf planets.”

Not important news for day to day life but interesting none the less!
